"Greetings. Our friends APAK had some art ripped off. Bastard art thief. See below for details. If you see it, drop them a line.
According to the e-mail, this 5 x 7 inch wooden slab of candy-colored whimsy by local illustrator couple APAK (a.k.a. Aaron and Ayumi Piland) disappeared from Compound Gallery on Sunday, joining the theft-worthy ranks of the Mona Lisa
and The Scream
. But don't feel too pleased with yourself, Bastard Art Thief. Despite Compound's imposing name, I imagine your fab nab was about as easy as borrowing your friend's Threadless T-shirt. Just contact the artists at firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know you're willing to come quietly, and maybe they won't sic that little white gnome on you.
